His attempts to prove his worthiness in the popularity race (he estimates he's currently ranked 52nd or 53rd) are constantly foiled...

The Arrival Recommended by Shaun Tan
Tan captures the displacement and awe with which immigrants respond to their new surroundings in this wordless graphic novel. It depicts the journey of one man, threatened by dark shapes that cast shadows on his family's life, to a new country. The only writing is in an invented alphabet, which creates the sensation immigrants must feel when they encounter a strange new language and way of life. A wide variety of ethnicities is represented, and the sense of warmth and caring for others, regardless of race, age, or background...

Caught Creatures Recommended by Daniel M. Davis
For our youngest graphic novel readers... and the rest, too! the world's finest Monster Haiku book. Yes, that's probably the best way to describe it.

Nope, not a bit. * Is it for adults? You bet! * Is it educational? There are lots of example Haikus in the book. * Is it for fans of monsters or Halloween? Huzzah!
